On the 20th January......

40 years ago today hubby and I tied the knot.   In the photo below we can be seen signing our marriage certificate

 And I am very pleased to say that it is still firmly tied and no sign of fraying around the edges after all these years.    We decided to stay local to celebrate our anniversary and due to the record high temperatures and fires burning all around our State we now realise that this was certainly the right  decision.    On Friday we started the day off with a lovely breakfast at a restaurant just opposite the beach - and this being the hottest day on record for Sydney it was definitely a good move.   A very appropriate design on the top on my breakfast coffee


Yesterday we had lunch at our favourite restaurant right on Narrabeen Lakes which can be seen behind us.  The food, service and ambience are second to none.

  Today we had a celebration lunch with our family.

 
I think that we have held up pretty well over the years.   A couple of extra kilos here and there and a few stray grey hairs have made an appearance but all in all not too bad.  

The picture below shows the lovely floral arrangements, gifts, cards and bottle of champagne that we received.
 Thanks hubby for the last forty years and heres hoping that there are many more to come.     Cheers.

Lovely photos, Karen. You both look so young and happy! Now you look maybe a tad older but still happy after all those years together. A wonderful achievement when these days couples want to give up after the first disagreement. Congratulations and well done both of you! Here's to many more happy years!
